Kueh Kosui

Calling out to all traditional kueh’s lovers. This is a undoubtedly soft and fantastically good kueh, as good as store-bought!   I am not exaggerating about it! Try and be convinced.  I made this for our last Saturday’s family gathering and they all loved it.  180papa has already requested me to make this again.  I agree with Blessed Homemaker, this can be eaten fresh from the fridge, no thawing needed.  Thanks to her for sharing this wonderful recipe.  This recipe fits nicely into a 9” round cake pan and can be quite a big serving for a small family, so you may want to halve the recipe.  I made this one day ahead with refrigeration, next day cut and coated with fresh grated coconut before serving.  Thumbs up!

Besides Kueh Kosui, we had Chocolate Cornflakes Cookies, Pandan Hoon Kwee Kueh and Banana & Cheese Cake for high-tea before heading down to the pit for our BBQ night.
